The Search for Lilo and Friends Begin
Lilo & Stitch is an iconic animated film released by Disney in 2002. The movie follows Lilo, a young Hawaiian girl who is navigating her childhood while being raised by her older sister, Nani. Their lives change in a big way when Lilo adopts Stitch, a blue alien creature who is as feisty as he is adorable. Mayhem ensues for Lilo, Nani, and Stitch when people and aliens from their lives try to break the family apart.
This movie was a massive hit when it was first released. People really resonated with the themes about finding your own family and accepting those who may be different from you. Plus, the gorgeous Hawaiian setting made the film so fun to watch. Fans of Lilo & Sitch were thrilled to learn that Walt Disney Studios had plans to make a live-action version of the movie.
So far, only two actors are attached to the upcoming film, which will be directed by Dean Fleischer Camp. Chris Sanders is set to reprise his role as the voice of Stitch, and Zach Galifianakis will join the cast as a character not yet announced. Many characters, including Lilo, and being Cast right now.
Now is the Chance to Audition for the Film
If you feel you would be right for this film, now is your chance to give it your best shot. Disney is currently searching for Lilo, Tutu, and Mrs. Kekoa.
For Lilo, they need a “young girl as a 6-8-year-old precocious Native Hawaiian who loves hula, surfing, and wildlife, with an affinity for all things gross!”
Tutu is “a Native Hawaiian woman in her 70s who speaks with a local Pidgin accent. She is warm, quick-witted, and hospitable. Tutu has been Lilo and Nani’s neighbor for years and is understanding of their struggles.”
Mrs. Kekoa is of “Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander heritage. She is a 55-year-old social worker. Mrs. Kekoa is a by-the-book, kind, and patient woman who checks in regularly with Nani, who she can tell is struggling to keep her head above water to care for Lilo.”
